Cooking for one can be kind of annoying but on the bright side, I can eat gnocchi with broccoli for dinner and not hear "where's the protein?" from Chris :)
I bought frozen gnocchi at Glorioso's quite awhile ago and in my attempt to empty the freezer before my move to Florida next month, I found a Cooking Light recipe for browned butter gnocchi with broccoli from the January/February 2013 issue.
I really liked the simplicity of this dish, easy to prepare and delicious! Since my protein policeman is 1,500 miles away, I paired my carb-filled main dish with bread :) When I returned from Miami last week I found that my chives had blossomed, so I turned to The Kitchn for advice on what to do with chive blossoms.
They recommended creating a goat cheese spread, which I really liked on both bread and crackers. I simply mixed goat cheese with a few chives and blossoms in a small bowl and quickly had the spread ready. I liked it with the gnocchi dish, but I also think it'd make an attractive appetizer for a party.
